We are almost done with the 2022 Formula 1 season. As we gear up for the finale In Abu Dhabi here is a look at the F1 schedule in 2023.
Formula 1 will be hosting its final race of the 2022 season this weekend. The 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will put an end to the first season in the new era of F1 cars. As we head to the end let’s take how the upcoming 2023 season’s schedule looks.
Formula 1 released a record-breaking 24-race calendar, approved by the World Motor Sport Council on 20th September 2022.
The 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship will have 24 races – the most in the history of the sport.
The season will kick off in Bahrain on March 5 and conclude in Abu Dhabi on November 26. Qatar and China will mark a return to Formula 1 with Las Vegas GP again entering the sport after 1982. It will also be the penultimate round of the season and only 7th race in the history of F1 to happen on Saturday – that too at night.
The summer break period will remain similar to the 2022 schedule. However, according to the 2023 schedule, the pre-season testing will start in Bahrain from February 23 to 25.
Sprint goes up
The introduction of a new format named sprint increased the thrill of a race weekend providing extra entertainment to the fans. FIA introduced the sprint format last year in 2021. 2021 saw three sprint races which were followed by the same three races this year with Brazil sprint being the last one.
However, now the sprint races are set to increase in 2023. World Motor Sport Council was firstly dubious of the move, however, decided to increase the number of sprint races in 2023 to six anyways.
The venues are yet to be announced by F1.
